hi all, for some weeks I've been getting lots of mails starting with "Virus entfernt]" and going on either "Use this patch immediately !" or "Thank you" or so on.
The few references on the web are only for insiders: they say you must remove the registries from your computer. Well, apart from the fact that I have no clue how to do that, I use my e-mail (web.de) on several computers, and those spams arrive every day, so I think it's an e-mail problem.
Who can help??

Dumaru-A Nov 29, 2003

Hi Martin,

are you sure that it is spam??

Web.de offers virus protection on server, therefore I believe that Web.de AV has removed the virus from the mails you got.

?

Worm Nov 29, 2003

Hi Martin,
I believe Giuliana is right - this reference line is characteristic for a couple of e-mail worms, notably Dumaru in its various types.

More info is available on the Symantec website.

HTH, Ralf

Martin, you are a Mac user... Nov 29, 2003

Dumaru isn't a problem for you.

Anyway, scrivimi in privato
